Klobuchar pushes E85 pumps
U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar is working to get more E-85 pumps installed.
In a letter co-signed by 11 other senators, congressional agricultural leaders are encouraged to provide federal funding for installing the pumps.
The Minnesota Democrat said Minnesota is the country's leader in selling E-85 fuel, a blend of 85 percent corn-based ethanol and 15 percent gasoline, but other states need to sell more. Of the 170,000 gasoline stations in the country, fewer than 1,200 sell E-85, she said.
A quarter of the country's E-85 pumps are in Minnesota.
